Can't connect at all. Worked fine until 2 weeks ago. Wasted many hours trying to get connected. Microsoft is useless. Expect to waste a few hours every couple of weeks trying to get it reconnected after it mysteriously disconnects. Ok, so I've now given feedback and sent problem logs and gotten a "thank you our developers will consider your feedback." Great. But the app still doesn't work and Microsoft is still no help whatsoever.

Great app syncs everything up!! It's kinda aggravating to get it set up some times. I could see this working very well for somebody if something happened to their phone screen!! (They could still use their phone without a doubt as if it weren't broken! Not with the phone off course, you'd have to use your computer instead but what a great thing to have!)

Works very well with windows 11. However... I don't want calls going through my PC. Only want to use the app for text messages. Turned off the phone capability in the PC software. (Made sense, right?) In a virtual meeting and phone starts ringing via PC! 😡 Didn't realize I have to turn the phone off in my phone app as well. Hopefully I've resolved the issue.
